I didn't think they would grow. I came home and stuck them into the ground and muttered something about how they would never come up. A whole year passed and some slight growth took place. I could see that something was there but nothing really came up. More time passed and I could literally see the growth right in front of me. I noticed that the plant multiplied and there was no longer one stem but two. Buds were coming up left and right!!
Years later, I still can't believe how much growth has taken place since I first brought it home and gave it some love. I am amazed at how things so small, so weak, can become so beautiful. How truly there is hope, even for the faint of heart.
